  2. Building on Success Now in it's fourth generation, the Spark made it's way into our lives back in 2008. Since then, it's given us the highest of highs on and off the race track. Several World Championships, dozens of World Cup Wins, some special shiny medals and countless good times on the trails later, the newest Spark platform is something else. How do you improve upon the best? Let's find out. Integrated Suspension Technology Now, a more noticeable change is that we’ve moved to a frame platform with an integrated shock. If we take a deeper look, this approach allows us to refine

  5. On 1 February 2021 Specialized Paarl opened its doors to the public in the midst of the Covid-19 Pandemic. View full article
  6. Set in a converted wine cellar on a working wine and fruit farm the Specialized Paarl store nestles beneath the magnificent backdrop of Paarl mountain. The name Paarl comes from the Dutch, “Parel” for Pearl from the granite outcrop that crests the mountain overlooking the town. Huge glass windows offer panoramic views of the Paarl valley and the Du Toitskloof mountains in the distance, reminding customers of the endless potential for adventure that lies in wait. The store is the brainchild of Paul Neethling and Darren Herbst, who share a vision of a community hub
  7. This feature is made possible by Isuzu, I was lucky enough to take their D-Max 250 X-Rider 4x2 double cab out for the weekend. Whenever I can I try to get out to the Cederberg for a weekend of cycling and relaxing. The roads can get quite rough in and out so when I had the opportunity to test the Isuzu X-Rider there was only one place I was going to go. The Isuzu D-Max 250 X-Rider 4x2 is a turbocharged 2.5lt diesel engine that produces a claimed 100kw and 320Nm of torque, plenty for what I needed to tackle getting in and out of the Cederberg. Where to stay?
  8. If you haven’t already been, the Cederberg is an incredible mountain oasis with a ton of activities from gravel and mountain biking to wine tasting, hiking, and there is even a Brewery that uses the fresh mountain water in the area to brew their beer. View full article
  9. Suzuki and Like2Bike let the outdoors in for South African kids. View full article
  10. We all love a good day in the outdoors, and Suzuki has teamed up with Like2Bike to make sure the love of the outdoors is shared with our kids and encouraged on the mountain bike trails around South Africa. Suzuki has an extensive record of making the outdoors fun, and for the kids of South Africa (especially these days!) it’s mission-critical to include them in the playtime we enjoy. We obviously can’t let them hop on their V-STROM and away they go, so we’ve extended our enthusiasm for a great day out to the MTB game. Sponsoring these events with our know-how of safety, enjoyment,
  11. Darkhorse are no strangers to the South African market having made a name for themselves offering well priced, good quality carbon wheels. Recently the brand made the leap to bikes with the Eclipse range of electric bikes. View full article
  12. We tested the Darkhorse Eclipse AL-D1 model. It is a drop bar configuration fitted with SRAM's Apex1 1x11 HRD groupset, Darkhorse alloy wheels, Kenda Flintridge 700x40c tyres and an Easton/RaceFace bar and stem combination. The alloy frame is available in two sizes Small/Medium and Large/Extra-Large. The frame features sliding rear dropouts making it single-speed and belt-drive ready while cabling is internally routed. And yes, it’s an e-bike. Darkhorse opted for the popular Mahle ebikemotion X35 system. The system uses a 250W rear hub motor and 248Wh battery which is tucked neatly a
  13. ONE SIZE DOESN’T FIT ALL A new bike is a critical investment for families. Especially now, when parents are looking for safe, fun ways for their kids to get out and get active. At Specialized, we know that greater comfort opens the door for more riding. With kids’ bikes, comfort comes from a bike that fits well, and a design that’s kid-focused. Because of their growth spurts and growth patterns, the perfect fitting kids’ bike is a short-lived “just right”. Not only do kids deserve class-leading bikes, but they also deserve a bike that fits better, for longer. “A better fit means mor
  14. Making kids’ bikes is about supporting and nurturing the spirit of riding from the first moment a kid’s feet hit the pedals. Kick-starting their passion for riding by delivering a great first ride means kids are more likely to keep riding for years to come. View full article
  15. After turning heads and dividing opinions with the launch of the Grail and its "hover bar" in 2018, Canyon have added a new, more adventure oriented gravel bike dubbed the Grizl. The Grizl builds on the successful formula of the Grail in sticking closely to a geometry mix that Canyon found works well, but amps up the accommodation for burlier tyres - up to 50mm on 700C wheels with 45mm fitted out of the box. The Grizl also brings mounting options on the fork legs, top tube, the usual bottle cage mounts, another below the top tube and a traditional handlebar setup. You should not be short
